Would you recommend this book as a MUST HAVE?
I have only now received this book, it was originally published in 1948 for home economic college courses. My copy is like new, I am thrilled with it. In just looking through it at the illustrations I can see it will be of immeasurable help and inspiration. This will be the book to go to when I like a pattern but would just like to add this, or change that, or even draft my own. This is the second real drafting book i have, the first, also very good, is Modern Pattern design by Harriet Pepin. I believe I can learn more from my investment of these two books than I could if I spent the $$ for years of college education at a designing school. They take the mystery out of style and will be a huge help with alterations. I would highly recommend this book.
